in a mist

During a temporary break in the rain this morning, as I drove south on Meridian near Northgate, I caught a glimpse of the downtown Seattle skyline floating in the semi-sunny mist, framed by the trees lining both sides of the road.

Even though the downtown skyscrapers are ecologically unfriendly as well as hives of frenetic activity, there was something deeply peaceful about the scene. It felt like looking at something old, classical, and tranquil, like a Chinese scroll painting of those lumpy hills of theirs, shrouded in fog.
